School Lunch Program
What's new for 2017-18?
Starting this year, in the Middle School and High School only, we will allow students to use their lunch account to pay for a la carte snack items. No charges will be allowed. Funds will be debited from the lunch account.
How much does a meal cost in 2017-18?
Breakfast $1.50 (Grades 6-12 only)
Elementary Lunch $2.85
Middle School/High School Lunch $3.00
My School Bucks
Students can use a pre-pay system called My School Bucks which eliminates the need for carrying money. The online payment service provides a quick and easy way to add money to your student’s meal account using a credit/debit card or electronic check.
How do I set up an account?
Go to www.MySchoolBucks.com. Set up an account using your child's District Student ID#. The ID# can be obtained from the District Office or the Cafeteria.
If you have any questions, contact MySchoolBucks at firstname.lastname@example.org 1-855-832-5226, or visit myschoolbucks.com and click on Help. By going on line to your own account, you can also view recent purchases, check balances, and set up low balance alerts. The system DOES NOT disclose whether a student is on Free and Reduced Lunch.
How do I put money on my child's account?
Parents put money into the account in advance. You may add money online at www.MySchoolBucks.com or by sending a check to the Skaneateles School Lunch Program.
Free and Reduced Lunch Program
|Every year the financial guidelines change in relation to the free and reduced lunch account. The program is HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL. You can review guidelines and complete a form at any time during the school year using the link below.
Free and reduced applications (for lunch and breakfast) are available and must be submitted each year by October 1, but the district can review and accept anytime if a family’s situation changes. Qualifying for the FRLP also qualifies students in grades 6 to 12 for our breakfast program. (See more on breakfast below). Please note the district’s free and reduced lunch percentages are used by the state and federal governments to determine grants and various aid categories for the district. Therefore if you qualify we strongly encourage you to participate in this program so as to benefit your family and the district. Again, participation in the program is highly confidential.
Keeping Kids Healthy
As we comply with the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and our own goal-setting, 51 percent of all grains provided by the school are whole grain. In addition, we continue to alter menus so that offerings are lower in sodium content. All ala carte items meet the Smart Snack Standards. These items are restricted in calories, sugar, fat and sodium – and have higher whole grain content.
Breakfast At School
We participate in the National School Breakfast Program for grades 6- 12 ONLY. Breakfast is offered from 7:15 to 8 a.m. daily. The price is $1.50 for a complete breakfast, including a hot item along with the choice of fruit or juice and milk each day. We also feature assorted fruit, yogurt smoothies, yogurt parfaits and cold cereal.
If your student is in grade 6-12 and qualifies for the free/reduced lunch program, they can also receive the free/reduced breakfast daily.
Please remember to keep your child's account current. A STUDENT MAY CHARGE ONLY THREE TIMES AFTER WHICH THEY WILL BE PROVIDED WITH A MEAL DISTRICT-APPROVED ALTERNATE MEAL UNTIL THE ACCOUNT IS BROUGH UP TO DATE.
We are looking forward to a healthy and nutritious year. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.
